Sublette County Records 5 New COVID-19 Cases

When the Wyoming Department of Health issues its daily update of new COVID-19 cases this afternoon, it will show that Sublette County has at least five new COVID-19 cases. These cases involve a wide age range, from a teenager to people in their 20s, 30s, 60s, and 70s. Two of the cases were close contacts of previously identified cases, and one case is a Pinedale High School student – the fourth school-related case in the county since the new school year began in late August.


Students

Students who test positive for the coronavirus will be excluded from school through isolation orders from public health officials, and will be allowed to return to school when the isolation order is lifted.


Families will be receiving an email from Public Health if their student had ANY POSSIBLE contact with the student. If you receive this email from Public Health, please monitor your student and contact your medical provider if they have any symptoms. This does not mean that your student needs to quarantine. Anyone who needs to quarantine will be called on the phone directly by Public Health.


Total Cases

Sublette County has had a total of 60 coronavirus cases (including confirmed and probable cases), with 51 recoveries. One Sublette County resident died after contracting the virus in a long-term care facility out of state. There are about two dozen residents currently in isolation or quarantine due to the coronavirus.


Symptoms

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.


People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

• Fever or chills

• Cough

• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

• Fatigue

• Muscle or body aches

• Headache

• New loss of taste or smell

• Sore throat
